The Daily Heat Index: Katharine McPhee Shows Us What She’s Working With in a ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Preview

Plus, we get our first look at Tom Cruise in ‘The Mummy,’ and Stephen Colbert develops a ‘Chopped’ parody.

Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:

Show Us What You’re Working With
In a rising trend on the Lip Sync Battle stage, celebrities are getting buck wild in hopes of coming out victorious by the night’s end. Following in the footsteps of Maxim favorite Kaley Cuoco is none other than Katharine McPhee, who channels her inner-Mystikal for a PG-13 performance of ‘Shake Ya Ass’ that’ll make your mouth water. The former American Idol contestant and Scorpion star proves she’s got plenty to work with, strutting around stage whilst reaching deep down her bra for some dolla dolla bills. If I was opponent Jason Derulo, I’d just pack up and leave right now. 

Colbert Does Chopped
While promoting The Boss on The Late Show, Melissa McCarthy brought up that the Food Network is one of the only things her and husband Ben Falcone can watch at home with the kids — more specifically, Chopped. Because Stephen Colbert likes to mess with people, he put the two to the test with his own 10-minute version of the hour-long competition series titled, Smooshed. Featuring crackers, bacon, and whatever else was in the break room fridge, the duo make dishes that make Colbert wince (and probably make him run to the bathroom once the cameras cut to break). Watch the hilarious segment above. 

Our First Look From The Mummy
Filming has finally begun for Universal’s take on The Mummy, and we’ve got our first glimpse at leading couple Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis on the streets of England. The storyline is set to follow a modernized take on the 1932 classic, with sexy Kingsman star Sofia Boutella taking on the role of the bandaged baddie. We’ll keep you posted as to when we finally see some shots of the actress in her undead state, but until then, count down the days until The Mummy hits theaters on June 9, 2017.
